How does change happen? How can it be initiated; how does it remain? And what can each person do individually to shape the transformation? What is the importance of the EU in climate protection and how do the local and European levels intertwine? These and other exciting questions will be discussed at the ClimateCoAction Summit.

  • In the opening keynote, Michael Bloss MEP will give an overview and a political classification of where Europe stands in climate protection
  • This will be followed by a short input by EU climate ambassador Prof. Dr. Marc Ringel and a discussion on the European Green Deal between Thekla Walker, Minister for the Environment in Baden-Wurttemberg, Michael Bloss MEP, Prof. Dr. Marc Ringel, a representative of Klimadelegation e.V. and Torsten Kallweit, CTO at Bosch Climate Solutions GmbH and Head of EHS and Sustainability at Robert Bosch GmbH. 
  • Several workshops around good practice examples from all over Europe invite the participants to get inspired, to interact and to network with each other on site or virtually.  
  • In the evening, there will be a second round on the podium where decision-makers will discuss with young people and change agents how change can become a reality at European and local level.

Art and Social Media

Besides the excellent programme at the ClimateCoActionSummit, the congress offers an inspiring side programme. The poetry slammer Melis, member of the Muslim artist collective "i,Slam", will performance on climate protection.

All day long you'll be able to participate in our two art actions, virtually:

Mouna will bring an artistic approach to the topic of climate justice. Together with or rather through you, an artistic project will be created: At the pulse of the earth. Heart to heart. Each for themselves and all together.

David and Ögunc will create a sound installation together with you. The online participants should take a moment to listen; differently. They will record the sounds of their environment and these will be spontaneously interwoven with samples from Garage229 to create a soundscape that will accompany parts of the event during the day and create a link between the two worlds. Heart to heart.

And Jan introduces foodsharing and explains how you can also participate in the fair sharing of food.
